A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all webpages grouped in sections as they show up on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a crucial effect on the popularity of your Internet site, especially when you have more content. It will enable visitors to browse the webpages and find what they need considerably faster, which will raise the possibility for them to revisit the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your site content better, which means that some pages will be in the results for specific searches, which may not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the needed website content. This is especially valid in case you update some webpages as the sitemap informs the search engines that they have to crawl this Internet site again so as to index the latest content. Having a sitemap nowadays is essential rather than an optional feature for any successful website.
